Hope for the hopeless.
Thanks to supporters like you, HCI continues to be the world leader in cancer genetics. No matter where they live, cancer patients and their families benefit from our research. More inherited genes have been discovered by researchers at HCI than at any other institute in the world. These include genes responsible for:
- Breast Cancer
- Colon Cancer
- Head and Neck Cancers
- Ovarian Cancers
Our last, best hope.
At any given time, 215 or more clinical trials are underway. HCI hunts for targeted therapies against cancer. Dozens of new treatments have become available as a "best, last hope" for people battling late stage cancers. Last year alone, HCI was able to offer dozens of new cancer treatments to patients who have been told their prognosis is terminal through our Phase I clinical trials.
Finding the best treatment for each person.
HCI is better positioned than any other cancer center in the world to deliver on the promise of personalized medicine. HCI manages and operates the Utah Population Database, the largest resource of its kind anywhere. This information helps researchers look for genetic patterns of cancer and identify risk.
